"Please join us for our second annual Pedal for Progress charity alley cat and help fight for a more gender-balanced world. This year’s theme for International Women’s Day, #BalanceforBetter, recognizes that gender balance in government, in media, in the home, in wealth, in the boardroom, and in your life is essential for economies and communities to thrive. In support of that theme, the Pedal for Progress Alley Cat honors those individuals, activists and organizations contributing to the global movement towards a more gender-balanced world. Donations/registrations for this event are in support of the Third Wave Fund, a Gender Justice organization which supports grassroots activism by underfunded groups like young women, queer, and trans youth of color and ensures that they have the tools and resources they need to lead powerful movements.
What's an alley-cat? Think of it as a bike scavenger hunt! Some people do it competitively, but most do it casually. We will have LOTS of prizes from awesome sponsors (to be announced soon). There will be a raffle AND we will be selling event water bottles with artwork by Claire Shadomy from Asheville, NC.
Registration to participate in the event is $10 + fees (total = $12.41 per rider). We will be accepting donations at the event if you'd like to make a larger gift. Unable to attend but still want to contribute? Check out the virtual rider registration. You can make a donation of any size. All proceeds from the event will go directly to Third Wave Fund.
